Executive Chef: Scott Warren

Wahoo Grill’s Executive Chef Scott Warren learned to cook at the knees of his paternal and maternal grandmothers in Colquitt, Georgia. He watched these two excellent cooks put out great Southern food every day. He left home for the University of Georgia and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Education while working in the dining halls. He found he loved the work so much that he moved to Atlanta and attended the School of Culinary Arts and left the world of education for the world of the kitchen.

Scott has been Executive chef for the Bread Market and Market Chef for Corner Bakery. He followed his former Bread Market Sous Chef, Jeanette Beale, to Wahoo Grill in 2005 and enjoys working in this well-run bistro where the food is a great value and the atmosphere is lots of fun. The thing he loves best about his job? The opportunity to create “specials” each evening which often feature the best and most interesting seafood available.
